Forum: GratefulDead Subject: Jerry's guitars

I was wondering what folks thought about how the different guitars Jerry used over the years helped shape the music of that era.Being a fan of the 72'-74 era, I tend to like his work with the Stratocaster and the less gimmicky effects like the wah-wah and cry baby.

I like the strat years the best too. Maybe if we're lucky monte or whoever it was will repost that fantastic peice on his guitars. Chronicles ALL the details inside and out year by year. I need to bookmark that one it's great.

btw when did Jerry start using the strat? I really like his tone alot in 71 too

my mistake. Its obvious just by looking should have said fall 69 to summer 73 though he played others during that time, such as a Turner. Graham Nash gave him the green alligator start. Apologies for being sloppy.

Vintage Guitar magazine has an article about Jerry's last guitars in the current issue. I haven't read it, I just saw it because Paul Reed Smith got his in the mail today at his ex-wife's house.

Personally I prefer the gibson sg years.I like that acid sound You have to check out Grateful Dead Gear by Blair Jackson (backbeat books) its a bit lacking in the technical but.still a good read.
